Michelle Stelmach, P.Ag.
I grew up on a dairy farm in central Saskatchewan and achieved my lifelong goal of becoming the Saskatchewan Dairy Princess at the age of 19. This wasn’t the end of my agricultural career, as it only fuelled my love of everything black and white and the industries responsible for primary food production. I have worked with producers, farmers, and ranchers in many different capacities in sales and service, consulting, research and verification, as well as in feed manufacturing and food processing. The common goal throughout is the production of top quality, safe and sustainable food, which Canadian farmers pride themselves on growing.
Working part-time with Brightspot allows me to raise my own herd…of kids. I enjoy coaching them on their curling teams and cheering on at hockey, Ukrainian dance, soccer and music.
